Movie Mogul Harvey Weinstein's Wife Georgina Chapman Is Leaving Him After Angelina Jolie And Gwyneth Paltrow Confirms He Harrassed Them

Harvey Weinstein’s wife, Marchesa designer Georgina Chapman, is leaving him — as more women continue to step forward to accuse the movie mogul of decades of s*xual harassment and assault.



Weinstein, 65, and Chapman, 41, married in 2007 and have two children together — India Pearl, 7, and Dashiell Max Robert, 4.

“My heart breaks for all the women who have suffered tremendous pain because of these unforgivable actions. I have chosen to leave my husband. Caring for my young children is my first priority and I ask the media for privacy at this time,” Chapman says in a statement to PEOPLE.

In the wake of the first allegations by multiple women in a New York Timesreport, Weinstein, who has denied allegations of nonconsensual s*x, initially said Chapman was standing behind him.

“She stands 100 percent behind me. Georgina and I have talked about this at length,” Weinstein told the New York Post, adding that Chapman was helping him become “a better human” and to “apologize to people for my bad behavior, to say I’m sorry, and to absolutely mean it.”

On Sunday, Weinstein was fired from his powerhouse film studio.

“In light of new information about misconduct by Harvey Weinstein that has emerged in the past few days, the directors of The Weinstein Company — Robert Weinstein, Lance Maerov, Richard Koenigsberg and Tarak Ben Ammar — have determined, and have informed Harvey Weinstein, that his employment with The Weinstein Company is terminated, effective immediately,” the Weinstein Company said in a statement.

In the NYT report that ran last week, eight women — including actress Ashley Judd — spoke out against Weinstein, accusing him of sexual harassment and inappropriate behavior. The paper also reported that Weinstein reached private settlements with eight women, including actress Rose McGowan.

On Tuesday, Gwyneth Paltrow and Angelina Jolie added their own accounts of alleged mistreatment. Paltrow told the NYT that Weinstein sexually harassed her in a hotel room after hiring her for the lead role in Emma when she was 22. The encounter allegedly ended with Weinstein placing his hands on her and suggesting a massage.

Jolie also told the outlet that she had a “bad experience” with Weinstein in a hotel room during the release of Playing by Heart in the late ’90s.

Also on Tuesday, the The New Yorker revealed — among 13 different women’s accounts of alleged sexual harassment, assault or rape — that the mogul allegedly forcibly performed oral sex on Italian actress Asia Argento two decades ago. Actresses Mira Sorvino and Rosanna Arquette also claimed that after rejecting Weinstein’s unwanted advances, they were removed from or kept from being hired for projects.

In response to the lengthy allegations made against Weinstein in the New Yorkerpiece, a spokesperson for Weinstein said, “Any allegations of non-consensual sex are unequivocally denied by Mr. Weinstein.”



*This is a common problem in every film industry.

Your sins will always catch up with you.. It might take time, but it comes knocking oneday.
Common problem that should never be taken lightly.
Most of them use the vulnerability and desperation of these young lads to get them to do unimaginable acts just for roles.

Of course the choice is yours to refuse these offers or refuse to put yourself in awkward situations but these men and women that dangle carrots for favors should be shamed too.

Lol@She stands behind me 100%

U see the hypocrisy is the north american system or the society of do or die mentality over a job or career. That many people today over there in america & Canada r seriously damaging lives due to workplace abuse & violations!!!

How come for almost 20 yrs since Gyneth Paltrow & Angelina Jolie among many other big stars & American women suffered abuse from this man & yet they all kept it quiet till now???
It's only now that a very young European girl, unknown actress & a nobody in the business is brave enough to go to report to the police & then authorities set a trap to catch this sick bastaard who has been tormenting many women in Hollywood for a very long time!!!
American & Canadian women r shameless hypocrites! Especially the white women r very useless in north america. They r their own worst enemies!!!
Tufiakwa!
Even their president trump too is an open misogynist who has no respect or dignity for women!!!

***this do or die work opportunity mentality in America is creating monsters & victims in many ways. Demons elsewhere taking advantage of work, jobs to hurt other people in America & Canada.

A case of missuse of power. Why did it take so long for the likes of Angela Jolie to voice out? He should face the long arm of the credit. His type makes it hard for women to make something of themselves. ....so so angry.

I'm surprised that Angelina Jolie didn't speak up before now. She's been a star for a long time now. Why didn't she say anything? Ladies, please don't keep quiet in the face of harassment. I had asked for help on this blog some months back and I got suggestions. I handled the matter there and then and the idiot boss has been keeping his distance since. I also alerted the upu g people around me so he couldnt find another victim. Let's stop the crime before it actually becomes one
